Building a new hull frigate WIP

Recommended Posts

Hello, I didn't plan to start a thread for this frigate but after months of work, I knew I needed creative input. 

So, here goes:

I'm redoing the Hull ship bit by bit, here we go. I'll show you more later. 

This is just my design for the stern, so I'd like feedback from especially @Sebeus Ion on the custom stern, @Legostone and later on, @Captain Green Hair.

She'll be a frigate of 26 guns 

 

Any feedback appreciated.

Both stern and bow are nice, but that blue tube is too strong against the black and yellow... if you had it in gold, it would give some sort of contrast yet blend in with the other gold elements. Black would work too of course, but maybe it would result in a too homogeneous area where the elements wouldn't stand out that much.

I'm inclined to agree that at the moment the different colors of tubing seem a bit odd.  But I've seen enough of your work to know that you're the Bob Ross of shipbuilders, so I'm going to sit back and watch where this takes us :-)

Frigate WIP

Time for an update, not much from me, just some pics.

The red sail isn't actually to do with that ship, it's another one.

Seeing the length-height ratio, I would have sweared it would turn out too bulky. But the full broadside looks good.

I think the Ymir looked similar to the firt picture too at some point.

Overall I'm confident in your building style and think you will achieve something you like.

She kind of is.... Any ideas for this? 

She's the same height as @Legostone's la comete, but lower at the stern.

TREASURE of posieden and frigate

Town in the back is for BoBs. 

What do you think of the white tiles on the side?

May I suggest you add the 553b part

to your carronade or a 98100 one

Your frigate is looking good, if you have a question about the BoBs class, it's going to reach class 6 (perhaps 7)

I have tried these already, and it looked like a fire hydrant. But thanks for the feedback anyway!

Aye, it looked too short.

Thanks, still not sure about the class. 6 is definite, while I feel it could be a stretch to class 7. She Is 2 studs longer than La Comete, which is class 7, but 1 stud lower.

the class depends on the deck number too.

 Shell be a frigate with a well deck, so a gundeck plus a quarter and forecastle.

Frigate stern 2nd draft

Stern first draft. I feel that the blue flextube at the bow fits now the stern has some.

Started stern galleries. Not too good at the moment and the stern is too tall..

Thanks! How many hulls do you have? You are free to ask questions if your wondering how I did something.

I think what is in the mail is 5x the bottom middle section, 2 of the end bottom bow pieces, and 2 of the ribbed bow pieces. It looks like that's pretty much what you used, except you only used the ribbed bow piece on the front (not on the back)?

Your exactly right, the upper bow part was not used so I could have a more realistic stern. I used 5 middles as well. Designing a upper stern design is tricky ( the Brick built white part) but if you do this you should check out @Maxim I's Princess Margot (6 miss) , and @Sebeus I's Beatrix (5 mids) and his Raging Fire (4 mids).
